    An explosion has been reported at the General Motors Technical Center in Warren, Michigan. The blast occurred at around 8:50 a.m.

    One, or possibly two people were injured, and have already been moved to hospital, reports the Detroit News. The center houses the General Motors Battery Lab and is used for testing and developing lithium-ion battery packs as well as other future battery technology.

    The building has been evacuated and all employees have been moved to safety. Were aware of an incident this morning at one of our labs at the GM Tech Center that required a fire and emergency response, GM spokesman Greg Martin said.

    wasn't there a rumor that the top-secret experimental battery
    - only needed half the space of the Volt's
    - could fully recharge in under 40 mins
    - gave a range well over 240 miles
    - used captured alien technology
    ?



    ...coulda sworn I started one like that
